By West, April 11, 1636. 



[1] Randall, or Randolph Holt, was ancestor of a family resident in 
Surry county (in which the grant described above was) to the present 
time. Randall Holt had a grant of land on Hog Island in 1650. Due 
him as son and heir of Mary Bayly, sole daughter and heir of John 
Bayly, of Hog Island, deceased, who came to Virginia in 1618. It ap- 
pears from another grant that Randall Holt came to Virginia before 
1632. In or before 1661, Randolph Holt, of Surry, had married Eliza- 
beth, widow of Christian Wilson, and daughter of John Hansford, of 
York county (York records). He was appointed a justice for Surry, 
December 22, 1668. On April 22, 1679, probate of the will of Mr. Ran- 
dall Holt, was granted on the petition of Elizabeth and John Holt, prob- 
ably his wife and son. John Holt, of Hog Island, Surry, died in 1705, 
leaving issue: John, David, Charles, Joseph and Benjamin. Captain 
Thomas Holt, probably another son of Randolph and Elizabeth Holt, 
was justice of Surry from 1697, and was paid his salary as a Burgess in 
the county levies apportioned in February, 1699, and November, 1700 
(Surry Rtcords). It is not known exactly (though the Surry records 
would doubtless show), when he died, but it appears to have been before 
the date of the will of his wife Elizabeth, March 4, 1708-9. This will, 
proved in Surry, May 3, 1709, names her grandsons Charles, Joseph and 
John, sons of John Holt; her granddaughter Mary Seward; son Thomas 
Holt, Thomas Edwards, of Hog Island, son William Holt, daughter 
Jane, wife of John Hancock, and daughter Lucy, wife of Joseph Mount- 
ford. Mrs. Elizabeth Holt appears to have been a daughter of James 
Mason, of Surry. James Mason in his will dated September, 1702, 
names his siste.r Holt, and gives a legacy to Thomas Holt. The will of 
Elizabeth Mason, of Surry, dated September 1713, names her grand- 
children Mary, Katherine, Martha, Elizabeth, Lucy, Frances, and Thos. 
Holt, Jr. The will of John Holt, dated July, and proved in Surry, De- 
cember, 1723, names his sons Thomas and John and daughters Mary 
and Elizabeth, and appoints his brother Joseph Holt, and Charles Binns 
executors. I cannot identify him. 

The will of Thomas Holt (probably the son of Thomas), proved in 



ABSTRACTS OF VIRGINIA LAND PATENTS. 453 

Surry, March, 1730, names his daughter Elizabeth, wife of Mr. Nicholas 
Cocke, daughter Mary, wife of William Hansford, daughter Martha, wife 
of Mr. John Newsom, daughter Lucy Holt, wile, and sons Thomas, 
Henry and James. The will of Robert Canfield, of Surry, dated Janu- 
ary 2, 1691, names Mrs Mary Holt, and his neice Elizabeth, wife of Wil- 
liam Holt. The will of William Holt, of Surry, dated March, and 
proved June, 1753, names his wife Mary, sons Benjamim, William, Fran- 
cis and James, and daughters Mary and Hannah. With the present 
information he cannot be identified. The will of John Holt, of Surry, 
dated September 21, 1759, and proved October 16, 1764, names his 
•daughters Kezia, Elizabeth, Mary and Anna; sons John and Josiah, son 
fin-law?] John Randolph Williamson, wife and son Randolph Holt (to 
latter gives lands on Hog Island, &c. ) 

The will of Randolph Holt, of Surry (son of John, whose will precedes 
this), was dated October 4, 1765, and names his brother Josiah (to whom 
he gives the plantation called Gray's. 600 acres, adjoining Hog Island), 
and sisters Mary and Anna Holt. The will of Charles Holt, of Surry, 
â– dated October 9, 1767, and proved April 27, 1773, names his sons Wil- 
liam and Henry, daughter Lucy Wall, wife Elizabeth (daughter of Rob- 
ert Presson), sons Charles and Samuel, and daughter Ann, Hannah and 
Sarah Holt. 

There is recorded in Surry a deed, dated January, 1764, from Thomas 
Holt to his son-in-law Henry Cocke. 

The will of Archer Holt, of Surry, was proved September, 1797; lega- 
tees: wife Mary, and children James, John, Elizabeth, Warner, Mary 
and Drew. 

The will of Joseph Holt, of Surry, was dated October, 1798, and 
proved April, 1799; legatees: sons Edward S. and Philip Holt, and 
daughter Mary S. Holt. 

The will of William Holt, of Surry, was dated December, 1800, and 
proved January, 1801; legatees: daughter Hannah B. Thompson, wife 
Becky, sons Francis and William, and daughter Catherine. 

Thomas Holt was sheriff of Surry 1702, 1705 and 1706, (Council Jour- 
nal). 

Michael Holt, of Surry, was lieutenant in the 15th Virginia Regiment, 
Continental Line, and died in service. Thomas Holt was a captain in 
the Revolution (he may not have been of Surry). 

In an application for bounty land it was proved in Petersburg, 1831, 
by the testimony of Clarimond Colquhoun, that James Holt, deceased, 
was the eldest brother of Henry Holt, midshipman in the State Revo- 
lutionary Navy, and that William C. Holt was the only child of James. 
The will of James Holt is on record in Norfolk county. It was dated 
January 5, 1779, has a codicil, and was proved March 24, 1779. It is 
described as the will of "James Holt, son of Thomas Holt, born at Hog 
Island in Surry county, Virginia, at present in Norfolk, attorney at law." 



454 VIRGINIA HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 

He gives certain property to the Corporation of Norfolk; bequests to his 
wife Ann (who had been a widow when he married her), the child his 
brother Henry had by his last wife; the said brother's daughter Clari- 
mond, and said nephew's sons James and Henry; Solomon Shepperd 
and Elizabeth, his wife, testator's daughter-in-law [step-daughter]. In 
the codicil he gives legacies to Leander, Sarah and Thomas, children of 
his brother Henry by his last marriage. 

The descent of the Holts of Norfolk and Princess Anne from the 
Surry family is shown, and there is no doubt that William C. Holt was 
the son of James Holt, son of the brother Henry, who by his first marriage 
had two sons, James and Henry. 

James Holt was a member of the House of Burgesses from Norfolk 
county 1772, 1774; of the Conventions of 1775 and 1776, and on Decem- 
ber 7th of that year was elected a judge of the Court of Admiralty (Jour- 
nals). He was a member of the first State Senate 1776-7. Colonel 
William C. Holt, a native of Norfolk, died November, 1832, aged forty- 
nine. He was elected at a early age to the House of Delegates, and 
served several years, and was then elected to the State Senate and was 
Speaker of that body (newspaper obituary). Colonel William Holt, 
probably the same, was a member of the House of Delegates from Prin- 
cess Anne t8i6, 1817, 1818, 1819 and 1820. William C. Holt, of Princess 
Anne, was State Senator from 1819 and was Speaker. John E. Holt, 
for twenty years Mayor of Norfolk, died October 13, 1832 (obituary). 

William Holt, lieutenant in the Continental Line was alive in 1817. 

Dr. M. Q. Holt was a member of the Legislature from Surry a few 
years ago. 

James Holt was appointed ajustice of Norfolk county, 1793. 

Farther information in regard to the Holts is desired. 

[2] The records of Surry show that on March 2, 1653, Richard Short- 
land, attorney for Mrs. Cicely Dunston, gave a discharge to Roger 
Nickolson, for all debts due by him to William Lee, deceased, his 
mother or his father-in-law.

[ij William Julian was a justice of Lower Norfolk in July, 1637. His 
wife was named Sarah. By order, November 6, 1646, the Governor and 
Council released Mr. William Julian from all of his offices on account of 
his great age. The next appearance of the name was in Northumber- 
land county, though it is not known that this person was a descendant 
of William Julian, of Lower Norfolk. In the county levy, made January 
3, 1682, it was ordered that 764 pounds of tobacco be paid to John Julian, 
surgeon at Potomac fort. This fort was probably somewhere near Aquia 
creek, and was supported at the joint cost of the Northern Neck coun-

in Northumberland that John Julian practiced his profession in that 
county. In Spotsylvania county, March 7, 1748, a marriage license was
